Military Family Resources

  • Here at EOC we have resources and activities that our military-connected students may find interesting and applicable to them. 

    • The Patriot Kids Club supports and encourages the academic success of the military child. They meet once a month by grade level. Through this club, Eastover-Central Elementary School of Arts provides military students and their families with tools necessary for:

      • An easy transition into a new school environment
      • Familiarity with their new community
      • Networking with other Eastover-Central military students and families
      • Support during deployments
    • School Counselor & Military Point of Contact:

      Professional school counselors are certified/licensed educators with a minimum of a Master’s degree in school counseling making them uniquely qualified to address students’ cognitive, socio-emotional, and career development needs by implementing a comprehensive school counseling program. They also provide consultation, individual and group counseling, and academic advisement. In addition, they provide prevention, crisis intervention, and conflict resolution.
    • CCS Military Family & Youth Liaison:

      The military family and youth liaison (MFYL) acts as a communication link between the installation and the school district in order to ease the transition for the military students. The MFYL coordinates and supports efforts to: assess needs, build awareness of resources, and connect those with needs to supportive solutions.
      Military-affiliated families may gain more information, as well as additional resources, through accessing the district’s Military Connection webpage using the following link: CCS Military Connections
